CF control horns

I know this has been brought up before but I am in need of some glue-in CF control horns. What I need is about 1.5" exposed out of the surface with a 1/4 to 3/8 offset. I have been searching online for hours. Any suggestions?

If you can find a crashed heli with carbon frames you can make your own.

I was hoping to avoid that. Actually I am a composites tech by trade so I have everything I need, it's just going to be a pain because I need a total of 16 peices. Easy to make a few but 16 will take hours and doing them by hand means less accuracy.

There are some at the bottom of the page that may or not be OK.

How about black G-10 glass horns? Do you really need carbon? I have them in my Accessories section
